On Developing This Blog
I created the blogging server that hosts this page with my bare hands. Well, the HTTP request handling software at least. And I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed it!
I head to recreate every feature that other blogging frameworks give you for free:
providing HTTP to HTTPS redirects
make the browser cache pages
provide an RSS feed
provide correct MIME types for all served files
setting up HTTPS
As a result of this endeavour, I have full control over every part of the server. Every header. Every response code. Every URL. No magic.
